Best Buy! A perennial favorite, this dry rosé of Pinot Gris is made in the Provençal style and set the standard in the Northwest for this Burgundian variety. Long Shadows founder, the late Allen Shoup, named this for his granddaughter, and winemaker Gilles Nicault — who trained in Provence — makes it beautiful vintage after vintage. Light and refreshing aromas of lime, white peach, and strawberry. Peach, melon, and hints of tropical fruits on the palate lead to a bone-dry (0.3% residual sugar) and satisfying finish with a linger fruity finish for recommended pairings such as barbecued ribs, prosciutto-wrapped melon and Phad Thai. This earned a gold medal at the 2023 Cascadia International Wine Competition, and it’s also available through Nine Hats Wines in SoDo.
